Ha, for those who think I drink too much white wine, I rec'd a message from a cousin this morning.  She asserted that I need more Zen in my life.  Off to the state store for a bottle of that. ;D

Besides, I can't be a real Housewives addict with it.  I must have a glass in order to follow Ramona's eyes.

Did your cousin say you needed more Zen in your life or more Zin? 

White Zin is not a proper wine though, its more a wine cooler on par with Bartles and James.  Try a Chardonnay or even better a Riesling!! Something to co memorate the housewives marathon!

I'm in the mood for some Trapiche Malbec.  This particular brand is one of the best that you can have at a decent price.

OMG, this reminds me of a video I saw online of this guy from Eastern Europe or somewhere who sits on an empty glass jar and it shatters WHILE its up his bum and the shards of glass are inside his butt and he is pouring blood out his butt and he's digging pieces of broken glass out of his tush. A very graphic video! I can try and find the link if anyone wants to see it  ::)

Did I misunderstand what wolfter meant by "handling red wine bottles"? I could only assume that had something to do with some heavy duty buttplay. That's what I get for spending all evening on hookup sites.... my mind is in the gutter!  :o

I really need to sue the hospital for allowing my private x-rays to be placed on the interwebs - isn't that a HIPPA violation? :o

Oh, and BTW, for those going to Seattle - let that x-ray be a warning of what the new screening devices at the airport and the TSA can see.

I quit checking out those sites when I watched a man "take on" a full 2 liter bottle of Pepsi.  How does one actually know they can do that, and why would they want to?  Or maybe I just missed out on the guilty pleasures of being a modern day queer while living the typical suburban lifestyle with my "room mate" for so long. 

Oh but my morals saved an entire community.  Almost every real husband in our boring community at one time or another tried to "experiment" with moi.  I bet not a one of them would have had a problem barebacking my young ass. 

Hell, I think I just derailed my own thread and I suddenly feel dirty enough to take another shower.  Perhaps after I view my one filthy bookmarked site.

Mostly I love all bubblies but in the summer I'll include chilled Italian reds.  Quebeqois model boyfriend insisted on cold reds the summer of passion on Rue Mouffetard (20 fucking years ago  :-X).  Pour into Duralex water glasses or in the US I think jelly glasses would be fine.
